What skills and experience we're looking for

Come and join our Trust as Headteacher of Charleton C of E Academy, a wonderful rural school just outside Kingsbridge nestled on the estuary and easy commute from places such Newton Abbot, Plymouth and Torbay. We are seeking that person who believes in our school Trust mission, ‘Flourishing Futures’, and commits to upholding the Christian distinctiveness of the school.

This the perfect post for someone seeking their first headship or someone who has experience of leading in small rural schools. You do not need experience of leading a church school, but you must be committed to upholding the Christian character of the school.

The headteacher will be passionate about small school education and this post comes with a part-time class teaching commitment. Charleton has a two-class structure which includes a Nursery.

What the school offers its staff

Charleton is a wonderful school for our pupils, and it is supported by a fantastic team and parents. Charleton is strengthened by being part of a local hub with Thurlestone C of E Academy and West Alvington C of E Academy as well as the wider family of schools in our school Trust family.

This is a wonderful opportunity to embrace all that is special to Charleton but also bring your own expertise and vision to the school. Our School Trust is committed to improving educational outcomes for the most disadvantaged children, ensuring that every child experiences an excellent curriculum that is distinctive to their community.

As well as providing the very best education for the children of Charleton, you will have the privilege to be part of a wider team of Headteachers who develop practice, share expertise, and innovate for the benefit of all children and colleagues within the Trust. We are an organisation where professional development and growth is supported and celebrated; we want you to feel professionally nourished and whose wellbeing is supported through our offer to you.

We further support our Headteachers to focus on the quality of the education offer by clearing the path. We have a fully comprehensive Business Support Offer which uses specialists to deal with areas such as catering, estates, finance, governance, HR etc. We can do this because we are a Trust.
